If you own makeup, sure you must own a good makeup remover too. Commercially available makeup removers contain alcohol or oil molecules that break down makeup removing it completely, but it deposits the unnecessary ingredients from the product on skin that can cause clogging pores and result into blemishes. There are chances that your makeup won’t come off completely and this too will cause acne.

Why look somewhere else when you can use natural home ingredients to remove your makeup? Below are some effective makeup removers that you can easily find at your home:


Coconut oil is ‘wonder oil’ that can remove makeup easily.  It breaks down your makeup, even the waterproof one and when you wipe it off, your makeup comes off completely. Besides, it also doesn’t clog your pores and is antimicrobial that will soothe your skin. Directly take some coconut oil on your palms and massage your face with it for few minutes concentrating on the waterproof eye makeup and lipstick. Once you are done massaging, take a tissue or washcloth and wipe your face. Use a good cleanser to wash you face and you are done.


If you have dry skin, you can use milk cream to remove your makeup. Take some fresh milk cream in a bowl and stir it very gently and slowly taking care not to separate the butter using a fork or spoon. Apply the milk cream on your face including area around the eyes and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Massage it thoroughly to remove all the makeup and wipe it off. Use a good cleanser to wash your face.


Honey makes a great makeup remover. Along with removing makeup, it helps brighten up your face just like milk cream does. Take a generous amount of honey and apply it on your face. Massage it for some time and wash it off.  You can use a cleanser but it is not necessary if your skin is cleansed properly.
